Obituary: Coleman Ray Cameron

"When one man dies, the chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language, and every chapter must be so translated," so averred the English poet John Donne, who also wrote "Death, be not proud, though some have called thee mighty and dreadful, for thou art not so;... One short sleep past, we wake eternally and death shall be no more; Death, thou shalt die."
